This door you might not open and you did

So enter now and see for what slight thing

You are betrayed . . . here is no treasure hid

No cauldron, no clear crystal mirroring

The sought for truth, no heads of women slain

For greed like yours, no writings of distress

But only what you see, look yet again.

An empty room, cobwebbed and comfortless

Yet this alone out of my life I kept

Unto myself, lest any know me quite

And you did so profane me when you crept

Unto the threshold of this room tonight

That I might never more behold your face

This now is yours. I seek another place.


            Edna St. Vincent Millay
